The Gers are entering Sunday's game on the back of a 2-0 win against Porto while Celtic also managed to defeat Lazio earlier during the week to advance to the last 32 of Europe's second-tier club competition.
Celtic and Rangers both have 31 points after 12 matches.
Much more to observe... Just like their arch-rivals Celtic, they have performed impressively in the Europa League this season and proven that they can indeed compete against some of the biggest sides in Europe. European football is a great addition for the club and the fans.
"But everyone is here primarily for the league so we need to get three points at the weekend".
Porto coach Conceicao expressed his view after the match that Rangers are a physical side and McAllister has revealed he was unhappy with the 44-year-old's remarks, which he thinks sold the Gers short.
"I saw the manager suggesting that when you play a Scottish team you've got to deal with the physicality and the technical side of the game is not necessarily an issue".
"Of course, people will talk about Buff (Morelos) and JD (Jermaine Defoe) and the attacking players, but don't forget the clean sheets and don't forget the defensive performances today".
Rangers travel to Livingston on Sunday while Celtic, who are ahead of Steven Gerrard's men only by a single goal, host high-flying Motherwell.
"We don't want to be going into the worldwide break having dropped any points because it definitely lingers when you do", he said. We've not been conceding a lot of goals and we're looking ever so risky going forward. We need to get a level of consistency.
Rangers must now prepare for tomorrow's trip to face Livingston at a ground where they lost last season. You'll be able to help us by clicking on these as we might earn fee if you happen to make a purchase order.
